Anodyne have officially broken up. Frontman Mike Hill confirmed the breakup to Lambgoat on July 7:

"It's been sort of in the back of everybody's mind for the last several months. I think we pretty much did everything we can do musically."

Hill also added that he will soon appear in a new band with Dave Witte (ex-Burnt By The Sun, Municipal Waste, etc.) with Jamie Getz (ex-Lickgoldensky, ex-Turmoil). The group will likely enter the studio late this summer, and begin touring early next year.

Formed in 1997, the band's most recent release was 2004's Lifetime Of Grey Skies on Level Plane. Their last show was on April 30 of this year in Rochester, New York. The band were scheduled to head out on a short August tour with Hot Cross and Ed Gein; they have since dropped off those shows. There are no plans for an official final show.
